DuPont chemical emissions: Dordrecht to give residents blood tests
Some 450 people living around a former DuPont plant in Dordrecht received a letter inviting them to have a blood test done. These blood tests were serve as a sample for an investigation into toxic chemicals used by the company until 2012, RTV Rijnmond reports. According to the broadcaster, the letter states that people are being randomly selected for blood tests from the area around the former plant. People who want a blood test, but did not receive an invitation, will have to pay to have one done. The DuPont plant was since taken over by company Chemours.
